LeBron James back to the Cavaliers? Don Draper pitches it

Jun 19, 2014, 6:45 PM EDT

If anyone can make the case LeBron James should sign with the Cavaliers, it’s Dan Gilbert Don Draper – a fictional “Mad Men” character who is probably more realistic than the Cavaliers’ hopes of luring back LeBron.

As I watched the pitch, though, I thought we might need to up the odds on LeBron’s for going to Cleveland. But the longer Don spoke, the more I realized he made a critical mistake.

Too many photos included LeBron’s underwhelming Cavaliers teammates.

Nostalgia for that? Hardly.
